The Vendeen marshes are a unique site with specific riche grasses and flora. The farm from which this Machecoulais cheese comes from is situated in this area. It is a region of natural beauty. The cheese with its savoury well balance taste, simple and direct, is a wonderful testimony to the lands the cows feed off. The perfect partner is a loaf of country bread with a heavy crust. Its rind is orange and its pate is white ivory.
